the coalition a big round of applause and i especially want to acknowledge that liaison, paul kumar, i don't see him in the crowd. i think it's fair to say that paul was an integral part to making this happen. thank you paul for your great work. let me talk about saint luke's, in life you come to full circle. i first came to saint luke's when i finished school. i graduated and didn't have health insurance and i was pretty sick and i didn't know what to do. i learned about saint luke's it where people who find themselves in my predictment go. my mom was ill and we had to take her to the er. they saved her life. it's very personal to me. the test for me has always been we want saint luke's to be a world class hospital. this dealen insures that we get that. we have 120 beds. which is a 50 percent increase from the original proposal, but more importantly, saint luke's plays a more important role as part of the larger cpmc system. cpmc by making it a larger hospital is making a real commitment to ensure this hospital will continue to serve this community for years to come. it's not just the size of
teague who elegantly replaced paul lord who had spent years on this project and really came on, really without any kind of interruption and was able to continue the leadership from planning on the plan. jose campos, joshua, and of course paul lord who really gave a lot of his energy and heart prior to this plan. so, i do want to just appreciate this moment that we're finally here and, of course, ask my colleagues for their support for this plan. also planning department is here to answer any questions as well as i. thank you. >> supervisor wiener. >> thank you, mr. president. so, i, as i've expressed in committee several times, i have significant concerns about the western soma plan. but starting on a more positive note, i really want to thank and acknowledge supervisor kim for her work and leadership around this plan. our disagreement, notwithstanding, i am actually very -- i've been very impressed by the way that supervisor kim and her staff have worked on this plan because this is not a plan that supervisor kim branded herself. it's been in the works a long time. i think supervisor

[ applause ] . let me just close by saying that our work is not done. and if you remember we had opponents who fought this library. who delayed our being here by years, by millions of dollars and by lawsuits. is some of them may be running to be supervisor of district 3. and some of them are opposing proposition b. boo. >> boo. >> they are fighting our kids. they are fighting our families and they are fighting the next generations, but shame on them. that is right. so let me just say we have done a lot of chants in san francisco like let's go giants. i have another one for you, let's go prop b, let's go joe d. are you ready, kids? let's go probb, let's g
choeden, heidi, maria, mike howard, efrin, paul warner, john berry, john pakz ton, george and glen. >> thank you, supervisors, thank you miss miller. my name is peter vang. i'm a resident. i'm a great admirer of the emergency management and as you can from some of the reports that have been written but it's always been bothering me tremendously over the years that we know when we walk into the garages, down stair space of these apartment buildings we see these studies in sheet rock areas that are going to collapse. i'm so happy that the city administrators office is really thinking ahead because tenants must be given greater chance to be able to stay in their homes with their books, furniture and pets and neighbors. if we can somehow strengthen that ability to stay home it can mean huge benefit to the neighbors how we must rise through maybe 6 months or a year long crisis. i really admire this work you are doing. thank you very much. >> thank you, i'm with san francisco tomorrow. caps one of soft story building of a much larger array of much more affected buildings. it's a priori
is jeremy paul. i'm here as both -- renter. it has a large position of a resident control and mostly rent control mostly unstable or unsafe housing. these properties are also economically unstable. i want to speak very strongly in support of this ordinance in the pass through as it's constructed. it's important to main tain this housing. i foresee an --ellis act bonanza for people that cannot maintain these buildings if they can not pass it through as it is. frankly the increase in value to the property owner, i think is negligently considering how much money was made by property owners who were able to demolish their properties after loma prieta. nobody thinks it's a benefit to tear down a building. so a lot of this housing is not being maintained in the way it needs to be maintained to preserve the rent controlled housing resources in the oldest buildings in san francisco. please observe the pass through as constructed. >> thank you very much. >> supervisors, my name is michael hammond. i'm here on behalf of the national association and remodeling industry. we saw with our own eyes firs
speaker please? >> good evening, commissioners, my name is paul wormer. i was one of the folks who filed an initial appeal on the first formula retail store covered on the ordinance to go over and that was the ralph lauren store and we remembered at the first hearing when their architects said you know we have discovered people don't like to go to the mall any more for our kind of store because all of the stores are the same. so we are moving out and we are looking for neighborhood districts like this to move into. and indeed, just about all of the stores that are opening on fillmore these days are not formula retail because they are the first or the second or the third in the roll out of a formula retail bohemeth, athletic came in and we are just one store in a year and a half? how many? the juice bar on the corner of sacramento and fillmore. that offered aparently significant money to the landlord to get rid of coffee bean and an existing franchised formula retail location. it was evolution fresh, it is a starbucks, the first roll out of a major chain, so there are serious gaps in the

[speaker not understood] from cna. as well as michael lion from gray pantherses. and i mention them in part because all of you ~ were really truly instrumental in the last few years at helping us understand issues from the community perspective. i probably missed some names and i apologize for that, but i just want to give my deep felt thanks to all of you in the community who worked hard to get us to where we are today. we still, regardless of what happens today, have a long ways to go and the conversations will continue. but i just wanted to acknowledge folks up at the start. and with that, supervisor campos. >> thank you, mr. president. i want to echo your remarks around the community of partners that have been working on this for so many years. and, you know, there have bee
